Oh baby, those are some cute photos of the Washington Capitals.

The team recently had a little contest to see who could correctly identify their teammates by their baby pictures.

Some Capitals players did pretty well with the game, but it was defenseman John Calrson who had the best lines.

"(Ovechkin) is pretty easy, it's a black and white picture," Calrson joked.

On Tom Wilson's picture, Calrson commented that "this isnt a baby picture, he's like 10."

For those scoring at home, the order of the baby pictures was Tom Wilson, Nick Jensen, Braden Holtby, Alex Ovechkin, Lars Eller, T.J. Oshie, Nicklas Backstrom, Dmitry Orlov and Carlson.

The game was posted ahead of Capitals Kid's Takeover, which featured plenty of youth involvement.

There was a kid broadcaster who then got to meet Capitals owner Ted Leonsis.

Safe to call Kid's Takeover at Capital One Arena a success.
